A Plymouth State University faculty group wants its 174 full-time, tenure track professors to be able to form a union.
The State Employee’s Association (SEA) filed on behalf of the faculty Monday to hold an election with the New Hampshire Public Employees Labor Relations Board.
Eligible members would vote to join the SEA later this spring. More than fifty percent approval is needed to pass.
Supporters of the union, like Associate Professor Scott Coykendall, say that it will improve communication with current and future university administrations.
